Software

CCEC students are exposed to a wide variety of computer software applications, many of which are integral to or, at least, commonly used in the professional disciplines of the College.

 

The College maintains laboratories where students have access to these software applications, but some students wish to experience greater contact with the software by having their own, licensed copies.

 

Fortunately, many scientific and engineering software providers understand that offering students free or discounted access to their products is a great way to gain life-long customers when our students graduate and enter the professional world.

 

Listed below are a few of the software applications you, as a student in one of our degree programs, may encounter. Where possible, links to free or discounted, legal sources are provided.
